    Following yesterday's "Day Without Immigrants Boycott" in which immigrants all around the country were encourged to skip work/school, shut down their businesses and/or boycott restaurants and retail stores, America's disaffected, millennial youth have decided that they too would like to participate in an anti-Trump protest whereby they could exercise their skills in extreme laziness while also extending their 3-day weekend to 4 days ... BONUS! Deemed the "Strike4Democrary", anti-Trump protesters took to the streets all around the country today to demand that Trump "STOP attacking and victimizing women, Muslims, immigrants, racial and ethnic groups, the LGBTQ+ community, working families, journalists,...

    For liberals, attempting to claim the moral high ground is like a community organizer winning the Nobel Peace Prize (or getting elected President of the United States): it only happens with willful suspension of reason and facts—which means it happens a lot in liberal circles. The most recent case in point is the “Moral Monday” movement that is active in a handful of states across the U.S. (mostly the South). For evidence of the corrupt morality that exists in this movement, you need to know nothing more than Moral Mondays were started by the NAACP. First in North Carolina, later...

    Victor Orban, the decidedly unconventional Prime Minister of Hungary, is staking out a new and markedly different approach to the refugee crisis currently engulfing the European Union. Like many other European leaders have done in recent years, Orban is laying out the welcome mat for refugees, but not the ones coming from terror plagued Islamic nations. Hungary, according to their leader, is ready to provide a new home for those fleeing… liberalism. (Europa News) Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says he’s open to accepting refugees, but only those fleeing liberal policies in Western Europe. Orban used his annual state of...

    One of the newest “social warriors” is a 13 year old seventh grade girl who currently attends a private Catholic school in New Jersey only because a judge has ordered the school to rescind its order expelling her. Of course the media sides with a selfish family that doesn’t care about anything but its own satisfaction; but when do the constitutional rights of a religious institution prevail? Here are the facts. The girl, who is described as an excellent basketball player, was not able to play for her school this year because it was not fielding a girls’ team in...

    For a lot of comics fans, Marvel just isn't what it used to be. While the comic line that gave us Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, and the X-Men has often been tinged with a bit of politics -- for example, discrimination against mutants is common in the Marvel universe -- recent comics from the company have been overwhelmingly political, and always politically left. Many fans have been less than appreciative. Luckily, it now seems those days are over:

    Remember when Democrats predicted the imminent decline of the GOP? The theory was that Republicans were so out of touch with women and ethnic minorities that they would soon be relegated to the status of a "permanent minority" - supported only by Southern white men and incapable of recapturing the White House.

    Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt has been rocking headgear with strong anti-Trump symbolism: The Pussy hat. To say it's politically charged is like saying third-rails are shocking: These hats are pointed symbols in opposition to President Donald Trump, who said in an infamous 2005 video that he grabbed women by their privates. That footage became controversial because the action meets legal definitions of sexual assault if done without consent.

    BURLINGTON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – A court date Friday for a Harwinton woman accused of trying to hit a police officer with her car Thursday in Burlington. State police say 58-year-old Eileen Pierce tried to hit an officer directing traffic at a tree-trimming site on Route 69– allegedly driving her Subaru wagon directly at him, yelling out the window, and shaking her fist. The officer quickly got out of the way, and police say Pierce narrowly missed hitting a tree crew. When Pierce was pulled over at the Burlington-Bristol line, troopers say she rambled for several minutes, saying she was...

    One of the most fascinating speeches in the Bible happens in Acts 5, with Jewish Pharisee Gamaliel addressing the Sanhedrin. He warns them that if the message being preached by the Apostles of Jesus were of man, it would fail. But if it is from God, it can't be stopped. It was of God, and it wasn't stopped. I find that passage particularly relevant today within American Christendom. There is a reason why liberal Christian movements like those championed by Jim Wallis, Rachel Held Evans, Shane Claiborne, and others are so ineffective and unpersuasive in American culture. Rather than seeking...

    Some legislators think Nevada women are cheap dates. Consider a recent proposal from Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui, D-Las Vegas, and Sen. Yvanna Cancela, D-Las Vegas, to eliminate the 8.15 percent sales tax on feminine hygiene products. Around the country, liberals are on a crusade to eliminate the “pink tax,” the higher prices women supposedly pay for products. Jauregui claims that by assessing a tax on tampons, “Our state government doesn’t view feminine hygiene products as a necessity.” This is ludicrous. State government has no opinion on feminine hygiene products. Tampons are taxed because Nevada has a sales tax.

    A poll released Tuesday found Canadians disenchanted with liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose approval ratings have fallen to their lowest since he assumed the nation’s highest office. The Forum Poll™, a public opinion firm, released their numbers while Trudeau was visiting western Calgary. Having called for “phasing out” oil sands from the nation’s economy, Calgarians greeted Trudeau with loud boos and, in some instances, barely managed to let Trudeau answer their barbed questions.

Obama's final press conference displayed the usual left wing bias complete with the familiar, slobbering adoration of the outgoing president. By contrast, President Trump met with cringe inducing screams, yelling, rude and disrespectful behavior at his first, pre-inauguration press conference in Trump Tower. A rather cursory search of Wikipedia reveals that, of the recent election campaign's presidential debate moderators, not one presented an advanced academic journalism degree,...

The University of Kentucky’s Title IX coordinator - Patty Bender, according to the public school's website - ruled that Ryan’s crooning of "California Girls" was sexual misconduct because the song includes "language of a sexual nature," Ryan writes.

Ioffe has since repeatedly apologized for her offensive statement and deleted the tweet in question.... In an e-mail obtained by The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple and others, Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris and Editor Carrie Budoff...

    Since these days it’s all about “fake news,” I think it’s time we say something about fake Jews, and not just because it rhymes. First you should know that as a writer this makes me automatically “a lonely guy.” I am not “sociable” and belong to no organizations. Never did. A lady in shul once asked me if I am “affiliated.” I did not know what she was talking about. Finally, she explained that it would be helpful if I became affiliated. “We need people like you,” she insisted. No, I don’t think so. I did not think so then...

    [A few words about America’s two biggest parasites--] if you’ve driven on southern interstates, you know kudzu. It’s that leafy vine that can cover the tallest trees. Finally, motorists see nothing but kudzu, which has earned the nickname, “The vine that ate the South.” Kudzu envelops everything and eventually destroys everything. In short, kudzu is exactly like Sight-Words. Kudzu, indigenous to Japan, was touted as an ornamental shade plant at US expositions in 1876 and 1883. During the 20th century, government agencies promoted kudzu as cattle feed. The Department of Agriculture also recommended “kudzu to help control erosion of slopes...

    America was founded to destroy “native Americans” and to find a place to invent slavery which never existed before. These slaves built the country, settled the land, fought its wars and invented everything while white male devils whipped the slaves, oppressed women, keeping them barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen, lying around idly when not destroying the environment. Christians are hateful bigots who want to ruin your sex life while atheists are enlightened believers in science and Muslims practice the “Religion of Peace™” while living in fear of religious oppression. Then these racist, bigoted, homophobic, sexist, drug addled, white, male,...
  • Van Jones no longer believes racism the reason for Trump victory?

    On election night, CNN guest star Van Jones claimed voters in the rustbelt states had been guilty of a “Whitelash;” that is, a racist backlash against 8 years of a black president. It was the only possible explanation for Hillary’s stunning loss to a candidate Jones accused of being a bully and a bigot. What a difference 3 weeks have made! Suddenly it was the “arrogance and elitism” of the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign that were responsible for the defeat no one on the left had expected. Maybe Jones no longer believes Trump to be a “bully” or...

    Terrorism comes in many forms. When terrorism is mentioned our first thought is radical Islamic terrorists, but we have home grown domestic terrorism in several forms in the U.S. today. Environmental terrorism has stopped the flow of water to the San Joaquin Valley in CA, to the destruction of jobs, farms and food production. Race baiters have learned how to terrorize cities and shakedown corporations for large sums of money. The moving target of gender identity has implemented the economic shakedown of small businesses, fueled by blatant intolerance for diversity of thought or religious conviction. This brand of economic terrorism...

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (November 22, 2016) — Education Secretary John B. King Jr. is urging governors and school leaders in states that allow student paddling to end a practice he said would be considered "criminal assault or battery" against an adult. King released a letter Tuesday asking leaders to replace corporal punishment with less punitive, more supportive disciplinary practices that he said work better against bad behavior.

    “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.” -Abraham Lincoln What we are seeing in recent protests against the election of Donald Trump are children that have been influenced by a liberal academia, which is a product of the hard-core radicalism of 1960’s. Ever since the 1970’s, when these radicals became professors, our universities have produced generations of graduates that are terminally callow, self-centered and petulant. Exhibit number one resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and as a result, we have endured this same sophomoric, selfish attitude for the last...

    As pollsters collectively changed their predictions and news pundits started to resemble confused and dejected children, the fight-or-flight response kicked in for countless viewers. Hearts pounded, stomachs turned and some of the more privileged liberals started seriously considering whether to flee the country in the face of a national nightmare that had just become a reality (privileged, because the average American doesn’t have the resources to just pack up and run at will).

    The following piece was published on the Breitbart website (NOT the Onion) on November 14th of this year. By Virginia Hale Politicians in Stockholm said the policy of “gender-equal” snow removal has failed after the weather brought Sweden’s capital to a standstill last week, with hospitals reporting a fourfold increase in broken bones. The city switched to a “feminist” system of clearing snow last winter but last week’s burst of snow, which threw the city into chaos, has cast doubt on its effectiveness. Hundreds of thousands of people were affected, with the majority of bus routes put out of service...
